Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Portland OR 236 PM PDT Tue Sep 29 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure over the region will maintain warm and dry conditions for rest of this week. Will also add some hazy smoky skies as smoke from California drifts overhead. Will see return of westerly flow this weekend, bringing cooler temperatures along with more blue skies as smoke gets pushed off to our east.

SHORT TERM. (Tonight through Friday) . Not much change. High pressure over the region, with light offshore flow. That offshore flow has allowed for another warm day along the coast, where afternoon temperatures spiked into the middle and upper 80s up and down the coast from Astoria to Florence, with near record highs. Newport, with a high of 86 deg, appears to have broken their old record for today of 82 deg set back in 1968. At 2 pm, Astoria with 82 deg was getting closer to their record of 84 deg, set in 1987.

Offshore winds will ease this evening, but warm dry air mass remains in place. Though much lighter winds for Wed and Thu, will see temperatures still reach into the middle 80s for many inland areas, and cooler on the coast with only 60s and lower 70s. For overnight lows, appears to be a mixed bag of 50s for most areas. But, with the dry air mass and somewhat low dew point temperatures, likely to see overnight lows drop into the 40s in spots, such as rural areas inland and Like last night, should see many of the lower elevations drop into the 50s, with middle to upper 40s a decent bet in spots.

But, with the high over the region and our area being under the southerly flow aloft, will continue to see smoke drifting northward tonight and Wed. Most of this smoke is higher up in the sky, generally 7000 to 10000 ft. So, would not expect any air quality issues. Just enough to make it rather hazy at times.

Little change in outlook for Thu, as looks like Thu will be a near carbon copy of Wed. Now, on Fri, there is a weak upper level disturbance off the coast that will push towards the Pac NW. System has little moisture associated with it, but it will act to enhance the low level onshore flow that will take a few deg off the temperatures. More importantly, it will turn the upper flow more southwesterly. This will allow the smoke and haze aloft to gradually shift back to the east. /Rockey

LONG TERM. (Friday night through Tuesday) . Guidance is starting to show the upper level ridge over the west breaking down Friday night into Saturday, with return of more westerly zonal flow. This will bring cooler temperatures, and bit more in way of low level onshore flow. But, still dry.

Models show another ridge offshore to start next week. If this bears out, then may have another bout of light to moderate offshore flow, with warm and dry conditions. But, that will only be temporarily. Both ECMWF and GFS support flow becoming more progressive as go deeper into next week. Models do diverge by Wed and Thu, with some runs showing rather wet and strong front arriving, with others show clouds and dry, with deep low approaching on Thu into Fri. So, confidence high in changes for next week, but low confidence in what will really happen As they say, stay tuned. /Rockey

AVIATION. High pressure remains over the region through the week keep conditions mainly VFR. Smoke from wildfires to the south will continue to move north this afternoon/evening, with hazy skies likely. Expect smoke to mainly remain elevated, but patchy surface smoke is possible closer to CA. Breezy conditions continue near the Gorge through this evening. Otherwise expect mainly light and variable winds through tomorrow.

Refer to http://weather.gov/zse for detailed regional aviation weather and hazard information.

KPDX AND APPROACHES . VFR conditions persist with light winds, but gusty east winds to 25 kt are possible near the Gorge into the evening. Smoke from wildfires to the south will bring hazy conditions for the next few days. /64

MARINE. High pressure aloft will keep conditions rather benign the next several days with winds generally less than 15 kt. Seas are currently around 8-9 ft this afternoon, but look to fall to around 5-6 ft on Wednesday. Expect this pattern to repeat every 24 hours or so through the weekend as seas build back to around 8-9 ft before falling to around 5-6 ft a day later. /64
